Insurance – Leopold Godowsky, Jr.

Leopold Godowsky Jr. (1900-1983), American violinist,  inventor of first practical color transparency film (Kodachrome) and son of the famous pianist and composer of the same name, once asked his sister to drive his children, three-year-old twins, to his home.

Please drive carefully”, Leopold warned his sister, “as I have two violins worth fifty thousand dollars in the luggage compartment”.

You're so insensitive!” – his sister said. “Which am I supposed to watch first, the twins or the fiddles?

The twins, of course” – said Godowsky. “The violins are very well insured”.
